An Ohio woman has been charged with the heinous crime of raping a 4-year-old boy, but that’s not all: The suspect allegedly recorded the rape and posted the video footage to the livestreaming service Periscope.
India Kirksey, 20, has been charged with first-degree felony rape, according to Cincinnati news station WCPO 9.
Kirskey allegedly confessed to the rape when questioned by police. According to court records, the woman allegedly took a video of the sexual assault, in which she reportedly performed oral sex on the 4-year-old boy, and then streamed it in Periscope. According to the news station, a Texas resident saw the live stream of the assault and forwarded it to authorities.
A family member told WCPO that Kirksey has special needs and that the behavior is out of character.
“We as family try to do the best we can to get her therapy and talk to her, maintain her safety, but sometimes you can only do so much,” the relative told the news station.”This is not her character.”
The relationship between Kirksey and the boy is not yet known. The suspect is being held on a $350,000 bond.
